From Iran and the Caucasus, this Cornflower has rich, lavender to rosy-pink 2 – 3-inch deeply fringed flowers in late spring to early summer. Enjoy in your cottage or meadow gardens or bring it to a vase near you as it performs well as a cut flower. Deadhead to prolong bloom time and cut back in the autumn. It obligingly grows in poor soils and clay.  Attractive to butterflies! 

Mature size: 2 – 2.5 T x 1 – 1.5 W perennial clump.

Minimum temperature: -30° F
